San Francisco, CA — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Pottery Barn Kids, a division of Williams-Sonoma Inc., have voluntarily recalled the Madeline bed canopy for fall and injury hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall on December 28, 2011.
The product recall was issued after discovering that the connections of the posts to the top rails of the canopy can separate, which allows the canopy components to fall. This defect results in an impact hazard to consumers.
Pottery Barns Kids is aware of 33 incidents of the canopy falling, which has resulted in one laceration that required stitches, among nine other reports of minor cuts.
“The canopy is part of the Madeline Bedroom Collection. It is made of wood and consists of four posts that connect to the headboard and footboard of the bed and four rails that connect to the top portion of each post. It is available for twin-, full- and queen-sized Madeline Beds and comes in white, antique white, blade green, Sun Valley blade green, Sun Valley light green and Sun Valley espresso. Pottery Barn Kids previously sold the canopy separately as an option for the Madeline Bed,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Pottery Barn Kids for a free repair.
For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Pottery Barn Kids toll-free at (855) 662-4114 between 4 a.m. and 9 p.m. PT daily or visit www.potterybarnkids.com.
